Stream Realty Partners Recruits Local Commercial Real Estate Leader To Bolster Industrial Leasing Team In Austin

AUSTIN, TEXAS – Jan. 18, 2023 – Stream Realty Partners continues to expand its industrial leasing team in Austin by hiring a local leader from a premier real estate advisory and investment firm.

Nathan Thornhill joins Stream, a national real estate services, development, and investment firm, as a Vice President of Industrial Leasing. He will work alongside Managing Director and Partner Sam Owen to grow the firm’s service business in the Austin market. Thornhill will be responsible for representing investors, owners, and tenants in leasing, site selection, acquisitions, dispositions, and development services. He previously worked at OakPoint for nearly six years, ascending from a Development Associate to Director of Leasing. 

“I was not looking to make a job jump, but after talking to the Stream Austin team over the course of a couple months, I felt like it was the right move,” Thornhill said. “The company has a first-class culture, pride in what they do, and high expectations–which was very appealing. I strongly believe in leasing with an owners’ mindset, a philosophy we share. I am excited for the opportunity to work with some of the best in our industry and look forward to adding value where I can.”

Thornhill began his career as a Market Research Intern at Heritage Title Company in Austin before moving to Haverwood Management, which later became OakPoint, as an Associate. From July 2014 to October 2015, he was a right-handed pitcher in the Philadelphia Phillies organization. Thornhill graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Communication Studies and a Master of Business Administration. He is a member of the Commercial Brokers Association.

“The industrial market in Austin and the surrounding areas is experiencing tremendous growth and leasing velocity,” Owen said. “Despite economic and geopolitical uncertainty, we believe the Austin industrial market will continue to expand. To best serve our clients, we identified an experienced and talented dealmaker with an owner’s mindset in Nathan. He embodies the traits we seek at Stream, and he will add value to our team and our clients on day 1. We are excited for the coming years and remain committed to providing first-class service in all that we do.”

Stream Austin will have 10 professionals dedicated to industrial leasing and transaction services with Thornhill’s hire. The team’s current leasing portfolio of existing or under-construction buildings is approximately 14 million square feet.
